You’re always more than welcome to stop by one of our stores and speak with a member of our friendly, knowledgeable staff or give us a call to ask about rates and availability, but now you can also visit our website to shop for storage in your area and book a storage unit without ever having to get up from your couch.

Moving to West Des Moines

West Des Moines is the 2nd largest city in the Des Moines Metropolitan Area and the 10th largest in the state of Iowa. In 2008, Money magazine ranked West Des Moines 94th on its list of the “100 Best Places to Live and Launch” in the U.S. West Des Moines is also one of the wealthiest cities in Iowa and the richest suburb of Des Moines.

Moving is never easy, especially if you’re doing it yourself, but renting a storage unit in Johnston can help make a move much easier. Once you’ve gone through the labor-intensive process of packing up your old home and moving everything to your new home, unpacking can be an intimidating prospect. Take some of the pressure off by placing those items you won’t need right away (seasonal clothing, sports equipment, spare furnishings/decorations, etc.) into a storage unit. That way you can focus on unpacking those items you will be using more immediately and regularly and can settle into your new home at a pace which is convenient for you. Our monthly leasing option means you’ll have as long as you need to unpack, but will never pay for storage for any longer than you’re actually using it.

You can also make things much easier on yourself by setting up as much as you can ahead of time. Pack a box of “essential” items and keep track of it throughout the move. That way you won’t find yourself searching for something you absolutely need. Reserve your storage unit so you know you can get the size you need, at the location closest to your new home and on the day you need it. Have the utilities hooked up before you arrive. If you’re going to have cable TV or the internet at home, try to schedule an appointment for the afternoon of moving day. Few things are more satisfying than being able to fully unwind after a long day of packing, loading, moving, unloading and unpacking.

Weather in West Des Moines

The climate of West Des Moines is just like the rest of the Des Moines Metropolitan Area. It’s marked by hot, humid summers and cold, sometimes severely cold, snowy winters.

Think about what you’re storing before selecting your storage unit. Moist air can mildew textiles and paper products or corrode metal. Extremely dry air can crack or warp wooden furniture.

If you are storing any of those delicate/valuable type items, consider a climate-controlled storage unit. By maintaining a constant, moderate temperature, climate-controlled storage units will help safeguard more delicate items from the elements.

Businesses Can Save with Self Storage

West Des Moines is home to the headquarters of several large companies, including Hy-Vee grocery stores, Kum and Go convenience stores, Iowa Foundation for Medical Care and Farm Bureau Financial Services. The city’s largest employer is Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.

Business owners should consider how renting self storage in West Des Moines can positively impact their bottom lines. Offices can often be expanded without ever leasing even one more inch of office space if surplus furnishings/equipment or archived records are moved out of the workspace and into a climate-controlled storage unit for safekeeping.

Retail business owners can improve their profit margins by purchasing inventory at a lower price point, either in larger bulk or during the off-peak months for seasonal inventory, and keeping that surplus inventory in storage until it’s needed on the sales floor. This will also enhance merchandising opportunities and create for a better overall shopping experience for customers.

Students Renting Storage in West Des Moines Can Create Limited Availability in Peak Seasons

The Des Moines Metropolitan Area is home to four-year colleges Drake University and Grand View University as well as Des Moines Area Community College. Graduating seniors exploring career options or undergraduates working internships/studying abroad often find StorageMart’s monthly leasing option convenient to their more transient lifestyle. Parents can rent storage units for their children via our website or by phone.

Student rental of storage often takes place over the summer months or in early winter, creating for temporary shortages of available storage space. Individuals who know ahead of time they’ll be needing storage, should take advantage of our easy, online rental process to ensure the storage unit they need is available when they need it.

Average Cost of Storage in West Des Moines

Self storage space in West Des Moines rents out, on average, at $.85 per square foot per month. The most commonly rented storage space is a non-climate controlled 10’x10’ unit, at an average cost of $108.67 per month.

The rate for a storage unit can vary due to a number of factors, including scarcity, proximity to loading docks or elevators or being on a ground floor as opposed to an upper floor. Storage facilities with more sophisticated security programs will often rent out space at slightly higher rates. Climate-controlled storage units typically cost more than regular storage units.
